Autumn leaves are falling and the air is getting crisper every day. The holidays are around the corner and the festivities are underway with Halloween! Our Monroe Family Dentistry team in Monroe, Michigan want to help you keep your commitment to you and your family’s smile health! Just because you’re surrounded by candy and sugary goodies doesn’t mean you can’t have a healthy Halloween. Let’s look at how they can get the most out of this spooky season while protecting their pearly whites.

Instead of bowls of candy, you can treat your family with healthy, snack-sized bags of pretzels, popcorn, dried fruit, nuts, pumpkin seeds, trail mix, mini boxes of raisins, and lots of crisp, fresh apples in season. This works whether you keep bowls of these in your home or at your desk in the office. These are also great for giving out on Halloween night, along with small oranges or clementines decorated like jack-o-lanterns with non-toxic ink. Your neighbors (of all ages) will love you!

Help your children celebrate with non-sugary treats as well. Stock up on festive treats such as themed toothbrushes, pencils, erasers, stickers, temporary tattoos, glow sticks, play-doh, sticky spooky eyeballs and spider rings! It is possible to enjoy the holiday season and still preserve those pearly whites. With just a small amount of effort with a creative twist, you and your family can have an eerily safe Halloween!

Keep your family’s healthy smiles on track with these simple tips. Make sure they are brushing and flossing every day, and keep any scheduled dental cleanings.

Our Monroe Family Dentistry team in Monroe, Michigan, along with Dr. Jeremy Dull wish you and yours a Happy, Healthy, Halloween!
